Murder, suicide, accidental suicide … the jury weighs in.
The jury in the Bahamas has finally ruled that the death of Daniel Smith, the son of the late Anna Nicole Smith, died of an accidental drug overdose. The jury has made their decision; however, the case of the death of Daniel and Anna Nicole Smith will be talked about for years to come.
The seven-member jury, which deliberated for less than two hours, recommended no criminal charges in the September 2006 death of 20-year-old Daniel Smith.
The son of the former Playboy playmate died after coming to the Bahamas to meet his new baby sister on Sept. 10, 2006. His mother died early the next year in Florida from an accidental drug overdose at age 39.
Police had said there was no evidence of homicide, and autopsies found that Daniel died from a combination of drugs, including methadone and antidepressants. But Bahamian authorities ordered the inquest amid widespread speculation over the circumstances surrounding his death.

How naive is Larry Birkhead if he thinks that this jury ruling will provide closure. The fact that both ex-Playboy playmate and blond bombshell, Anna Nicole Smith and her son Daniel died of drug overdoses will cause this story to be talked about and a conspiracy forever. There were too many bizarre circumstances in both cases of Anna Nicole and Daniel’s death to just think that they were both accidental. How long will it be before Oliver Stone will be making a conspiracy movie?
Passport-Gate Snooping … Hillary Rodham Clinton, John McCain, Barack Obama late Playboy playmate Anna Nicole Smith
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Anna Nicole Smith. There is a list of names that no one would have ever thought mentioned in the same sentence.
What is going on at the State Department? First Barack Obama’s camp cried foul as they tried to make the breach of Obama’s passport file an attempted political hack attack against the Democratic presidential candidate. Then we would later learn that the files of Hillary Clinton and John McCain were also breached. Now, it is reported that the passport file of former Playmate and the late Anna Nicole Smith were accessed over 20 times since January 2007. Do employees at the State Department have nothing better to do these days? Are they board? Maybe they do not need to be employed. In a day an age of identity theft, it’s nice to see that security breaches might be coming from the State Department itself.
An internal department review has found the additional instances of department employees or contractors looking at computerized passport files of politicians and celebrities, according to preliminary results.
It has not been determined if the new cases also involved improper peeking, officials familiar with the review said Wednesday. Smith’s case, however, seems legitimate, the officials said. The review is not complete and the exact number of cases was not yet clear.

Many have been speculating when the other shoe would fall in the death of Anna Nicole Smith as to the amount of prescription drugs that were in her possession at the time of her death. It would seem a rather strange circumstance that both Anna Nicole Smith and her son Daniel Smith would both die of accidental overdoses in such a close time span. It appears that shoe has finally fallen and the Anna Nicole Smith’s former doctors are under investigation. The raids carried out against Smith’s former doctors grew out of a California Medical Board inquiry.
The raids grew out of a California Medical Board inquiry, and sources said they were part of an ongoing investigation into whether drugs were unlawfully prescribed and dispensed to Smith, a 39-year-old former jeans model and Playboy playmate who was found dead in a Hollywood, Fla., hotel Feb. 8.
Search warrants were issued and searches were carried out in Los Angeles and Orange counties of six locations including the homes and offices of two doctors related to “doctors who provided medical treatment or prescribed drugs for Anna Nicole Smith or her associates”. The offices of Dr. Khristine Eroshevich were also searched.
LOS ANGELES (AP) – State authorities investigating circumstances surrounding the overdose death of Anna Nicole Smith raided six locations Friday, including the offices and residences of two doctors.

What will come of all this? These types of lawsuits are difficult to prove. However, one thing is for certain, the MSM tabloids will have a field day. Let’s hope we can interview all parties involved to get their sides of the story.
Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer and companion, Howard K. Stern, filed a $60 million libel lawsuit Tuesday against Rita Cosby and her publisher over a book she wrote that claims Stern and Smith’s ex-boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, had a sexual encounter.
The suit, filed in federal court in New York, seeks $10 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages from Cosby, the former MSNBC host who wrote “Blonde Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith’s Death” — and Hachette Book Group USA Inc.
The book, which hit stores in September, claims that besides the alleged sexual encounter, Birkhead and Stern both worked together after Smith’s death to manipulate the media and maximize profits. (AP)
